Licensing and IP managers

An IP portfolio has increasingly become regarded as a major strategic asset of the firm, and increasingly as the main asset.

Corporate IP and licensing managers have the job of managing this portfolio to produce the optimal return for their companies. Our products and services can support these requirements by providing:

  • An objective view of the relative quality of your or competing patent portfolios
  • Decision support which patents have the potential for licensing, assertion or disposal
  • Sophisticated insight into the patent landscape of an investment focus of their firm
  • A unique means for identifying freedom to operate risks
  • The best patenting strategy considering the characteristics of your technology field
  • A unique means for marketing your patent portfolio

Contact us today to learn more about how we can help IP managers drive value from their portfolio.

 I spent two days looking for a relevant patent for a client using a conventional search. The second patent took me 30 minutes to find with AmberScope.

 I can not appreciate more how much work and time this program has saved us. Its capability to analyse all possible relevant patents in accordance to timeline, key words and other means are a great filtering tool. The degree of relevance highlighted by the thickness and type of arrows are even more helpful in eventually pinpointing a possible IP area to target the new technology.

 I was able to uncover significantly more patents that were relevant to my topic, ... much more quickly than when compared to a text based site. I found the graphical representation very intuitive and easy to use. It also opened up relevant areas that I would not have otherwise considered.

 I was looking for a prior art patent to invalidate a granted patent that was blocking a client’s product coming to market. I had tried a conventional patent search, and even a conventional citation search, but without luck. So I ran the search in AmberScope – and by exploring the visual links was able to find a prior art patent that essentially discloses the blocking patent. My client is now in a much better position to bring a product to market. Once again, AmberScope has found prior art missed by other searching techniques.

 I recently used Ambercite for a novelty search and got a knock-out hit in less than half an hour. Even though, we generally use other platforms for searches I have to admit once you use Ambercite, you can't go back to anything else. Keep up the good work!
